Baci di Ricotta

These are little puffs made from Ricotta, eggs, cinnamon and lemon zest
deep fried
and dusted in sugar

crispy exterior
light fluffy centre

what more do you want from a dessert?


200g ricotta
2 large eggs
75g plain flour
1 1/2 tspn bak powder
pinch salt
1/2 tspn ground cinnamon
1 tblspn sugar
1/2 vanilla extract
zest of 1 lemon

Put ricotta in bowl, add eggs, stir until smooth
Add all other ingredients and stir to form a smooth batter
Heat a shallow frying pan with clean vegetable oil
when a small piece of batter sizzles and floats 
Drop tspn sized dollops of batter into oil and fry 4-5 at a time
turn when golden (this will happen pretty quick)
and fry for about a minute on other side
remove to a plate with paper towel and repeat with rest of batter
sprinkle with icing sugar 
and eat
